For most people, crocheting is a way to make gifts for friends or just keep one’s hands busy while watching TV. It’s fun, easy, and generally commitment-free. But crocheting is an incredibly practical skill that can help you clothe your family without depending on overseas clothing production.
YARN: Patons Silk Bamboo
SUPPLIES: 5.0mm (H) hook, Yarn needle
With a skein or two of yarn, a crochet hook, and the knowledge of a few basic stitches, you can create your own bags, household accessories, and even clothes – all without a sewing machine or a supply of fabric. No laying out parchment patterns, pinning pieces together, or messing with seam allowance is required.
Crocheted clothing can be far softer and more comfortable than store-bought, with the added advantage of letting you choose your own favorite colors and styles.
If you already know how to crochet, but haven’t made the leap from scarves and blankets to clothing, now’s the time. Although crocheted sewing patterns can look intimidating, they all follow the same basic stitches you’ve already been using.
We’ve found an excellent free pattern for a long, sleeveless top, perfect for spring, summer, and early fall.
The suggested yarn is super-soft silk bamboo, but just about any type would work. The design is also very forgiving when it comes to sizing, so it’s the perfect project to start with if you’re still a little unsure about diving into your first full clothing pattern.
